i called back and got a recorded message - very weird on 30 April 2019 Caller: 0488 823 011
Claimed that someone from my number had a motor vehicle accident within the last two years and that they can assist with obtaining compensation. Guy had a really thick Cantonese accent and was clearly reading from a script. Said that they 'had solicitors' that can help me. Asked him what states and territories the 'solicitors' were registered to practice in. That threw him. After some nervous 'ummmms' he then claimed he couldn't hear me. Told him that he wasn't very good at this scamming bizzo, so perhaps he should consider a change in careers.He heard that.
Caller claimed to be from "Legal Assist". Obvious scam. Hung up. Caller: "Legal Assist"
Asked me if I or anyone in my family had had an accident in the past 2 years - I replied with "ya know, this is one of the most well known scams in Australia" to which she replied "It's not a scam." This went on for a while, until she eventually hung up on me. She may not have enjoyed the phone call, but I certainly did.
Called and I missed it, called back and they are still trying to scam people, surely this should no longer be happening Scam call from Chinese accent male voice Lady with accent said about an accident I had in a vehicle. I hung up on her got a call, rang number back... non english speaking person insisted i had been in a car accident in the last 3 years. Advised I have never been in an accident, kept insisting, so i have now blocked the number Caller: Unknown
Motor vehicle scam, knew my first and last name oddly.
Fraudulent / Scam. Had my full name. Female voice, non Australian accent, she was ringing from Legal Assist re accident I had. Told her I thought it was fraudulent, she said it was not. I asked for her full name, she advised she had already given it. I asked for the ABN of the company she was calling from and she advised she was not authorised to release this information. Had a missed call so I rang back. Call was answered right away but couldnt understand what she was saying except for how may I help you? Didnt get into conversation with her. Hanged up and blocked the number. Background was very noisy and she spoke with an Indian accent. This is a scam re car accidents Caller: Insurance Legal
Didn't let her get started....she introduced herself as being from insurance legal....yep, just hung up and blocked number
"Charles from accident insurance claims"
Knew my full name.
Indian accent and people laughing and chatting in the background.
I hung up after he introduced himself.

Got a miss call from this number. When I call back the lady with a non- Australian accent answer. She said that she was calling from some car insurance company about the accident. I told her that I have no car, you have called the wrong number. She said sorry and finished the phone call.
